spear and shield

  1. Let's talk about the spears.

    Hello everyone! I want to start by saying that I love Bannerlord and Mount and Blade franchise as a whole. I played all variations of the game over the years. Only one single thing in this game makes me unhappy: underutilization of most important weapon on a battlefield – the spear...
  2. Should spear thrusts be enabled while blocking with shield?

    So I saw in a recent video made by 'Resonant' about the first mount and blade game and saw that the character automatically places his shield in front while thrusting. So if both player and AI are able to use spear thrusting animations while blocking with shield in front, wouldn't it make spears...

    The spears, man... Let's just make them viable.

    Hello there, do you have the time to talk about the spears? Well, it does feel a bit better than in Warband. I'll give you that. But it's still unusable if your opponent knows how to block on a less-than-average level. Let's discuss this. So this is what happened: I tried out using the spear...
  4. Spears should be viable melee weapons

    Spears and potential to improve them

    Why are spears being held incorrectly by every model? They're always held in the center of the shaft in-game. Why can't we be allowed to use the full length of spears? I'd also like it if spears couldn't do much of any damage with the haft and that the spear-head always had a hitbox. Having A.I...
  6. One-handed spears

    One-handed polearms need a little love in this game. With the empire factions so prominent, I'd love to see phalanx-style combat as a viable option, but it isn't right now. In some of the eastern cities, it's common for tournaments to assign you a shield and one-handed spear in a tournament. If...

    Thrust Spears with Shield Up

    This is a common reason for the shield/spear combination in history. While holding up a shield to defend yourself, you can thrust the spear forward. This should be implemented in the game. When blocking to the left, you can thrust on the right. When blocking low, you can thrust high. Let the...
